Founder Isaac M. Jordan, MIAMI (OHIO) 1857, born on a farm in central Pennsylvania, was 20 years old at the time of Sigma Chi's founding. In a speech he gave in 1884, he delineated the valued criteria for pledging, which is now known as The Jordan Standard. The Jordan Standard calls for: a man of good character, a student of fair ability, with ambitious purposes, a congenial disposition, possessed of good morals, having a high sense of honor and, a deep sense of personal responsibility. In the spirit of that standard, the Kappa Upsilon chapter of Sigma Chi started a scholarship that any current Johns Hopkins University freshman male may apply to receive.
Three scholarships up to $250 will be awarded to the applicants whose responses most reflect our Fraternity's values and ideals. The deadline to apply is November 23rd, 2018.
